P Day in Manhattan
You can't leave New York without seeing the Empire State Building. So that is where we went yesterday. We took the subway to 34th street and walked to the Empire State Building passing Macy's department store. We also got the ticket for the New York Sky Ride. It is kind of like a ride at Lagoon. They call it a MOTION ride. It is a synthesized experience of flying in a helicopter around NY. They pull the lap bar down to hold you in and then you take off. The floor tips and bumps to give the feel of really moving up and down. Verae wasn't so sure she wanted to go on it, but after paying $78 for our 2 tickets, I wouldn't let her out of it. She closed her eyes part of the time, but she lived through it and did like some of it. We then went up to the observation deck on the 86th floor to take pictures. You can go to the 102nd floor, but that costs more. The view was spectacular as you can see by the photos. Click on the Photo to see the other pictures. After that we walked to Time Square and then past the Trump Tower and home again a total of 2.5 miles.
